CHICAGO (WLS) -- Gas stations are looking to cash in on the nation's growing thirst for craft beer.

Beer taps have been installed in dozens of gas stations, grocery stores and other retailers.

Customers can then fill up 64 ounce growlers. About 35 states allow retailers to sell the refillable, half-gallon glass jugs.

Several other states are considering laws to allow the practice. But some brewers are a little skeptical about putting their beer on tap in gas stations and corner stores.
